Rock Me Gently.  It's a mantra I'm sporting for 2014.  Strange?  Perhaps.  But, it's precisely what you might expect from The Naked Blogger (I've even got a Pinterest Board with the same title).  Spring is upon us, which always brings a bit of reflection and hope for new beginnings.  I get excite...
The People’s Choice - Top 10 Posts to Ponder.  With the Oscars behind us, I thought it might be fun to take a look at the People's Choice posts.  I'm always curious what others find interesting.  While many of these posts  didn't receive a lot of comments, it's clear (from the click-thru number) ...
What do you call 40 years of friendship, sweatpants, no make-up, and divine secrets over dessert into the wee hours of the morning?  Some call it crazy.  I call it Ya-Ya Sisterhood. I consider myself an honorary member of the Ya-Ya club, along with my two BFF's from high school, Terrie Larson-Wil...
Because seriously... who is perfect?  I love, love, love this video for so many reasons.  The biggest being, it celebrates who we are, where we are, with all of our perfect imperfections.  And why not?! For too long, Hollyweird and the fashion industry have shaped our world view of beauty.  What ...
Should You Ditch Your Niche and Switch?!  Let's face it, some of us may be missing the mark when it comes to selling real estate.  We may be sabotoging our greatest potential by not zeroing in on niche marketing. Selling Rural Properties is my Niche.  I've lived in the country for 30+ years and I...
Ladies and Gents... The Envelope Please... And the Winner is... But Wait!  First... A few accolades are in order!  There's no guesswork necessary.  No more Post-it notes pasted to the fridge.  No more bread crumb trails leading to your favorite list of things buried in the crinkled pages of his/h...
Hard Hats for Humanity.  There's no question, I can be a little hard-headed at times.  Although, when it comes to helping others, I have a soft spot in my heart for humanity.    Random acts of kindness  inspire me.  Last November, I had another wonderful opportunity to partner with my fellow REAL...
Write More Love Letters.  This day was like any other day.  I started my 11-hour road trip to Southern California to see my beloved family.  For some, it's a boring drive along Interstate 5.  For me, it's always an adventure. I notice things as I drive.  I see blue skies with white patchy clouds....
How to get women to exercise.  It's quite simple really.  Offer a hot pink bike, a water bottle, some electricity, a boom tune, and a whole lotta laughter.   This video is frickin' hilarious!  Not to mention a very creative idea for a spin class!  Leave it to the French to invent something fun, s...
I Quit!!!  I'm probably the only person on the planet that didn't watch the Superbowl game.  Having cheered for many football games in my youth and watching my son play, I'm sure I didn't miss much (except maybe the entertaining commercials). I watched one this morning and LOL.  Gwen announced in...
